Just a rumour that newcastle will make late bid for berahino once they've offloaded cisse and couple of others bid of £24 million. Just a Rumour!

Believable3 Unbelievable2

30 Aug 2015 10:00:35
Though Berahino is the type of player we need, I feel there's more of a 'good deal' available with Austin. Though there'll be a lot of competition as I fully expect QPR willing to accept around the £12m mark on the final day.

Agree0 Disagree2

30 Aug 2015 10:50:46
If it is true someone is panicking and not before time.

This team could be rock bottom by mid October

Agree3 Disagree4

30 Aug 2015 12:46:51
If we're going to play that style of play we need pace berahino would fit the bill but I expect us to go for lacazzett from lyon

Agree1 Disagree2

30 Aug 2015 12:50:38
He'd be a great addition and should go for it.

Agree1 Disagree0

31 Aug 2015 10:57:32
Hernandez should also be an option and available at a reasonable price.

With deadline day fast approaching, Mourinho could turn his attention to Sissoko after a move for Pogba has been dragging on. Chelsea are selling Jobi to Besiktas and want a powerhouse to provide competition in the squad.
Kemen set for Monaco, not sure how good he is but the fact gouffran started ahead of him CM the other night can't be too good.
So with Sissoko leaving Newcastle could invest that in a good LB, Guerreiro of Loreint for 8.5 Million.
Also with Tiote looking rusty our interest in Nampalys Mendy could be reignited.

Believable2 Unbelievable3

27 Aug 2015 20:13:46
Danno He could do all that BUT Ashley wants the money back on the club for him
Expenditure 50M 34M already in the club and the Pardew money etc and 50m already from TV from the 110M and we mess about when a defender is needed desperately.

Sissoko and Cisse could go 20m back in the club Still time to act but it is running out,perhaps there is a surprise or Ashley just being Ashley MONEY is his only goal

Agree5 Disagree1

27 Aug 2015 20:21:07
Ive Had a few beers and feeling optimistic. Sissoko going knowhere. Tioti can go as far as I'm concerned to many fouls and miss passed side passing for my liking. chelsea need a power house to win them the league sissoko not that man.

Agree1 Disagree1

27 Aug 2015 21:54:52
agree baldie, sissoko is not the man for chelsea

Agree0 Disagree1

28 Aug 2015 12:47:57
Keman under 21 captain and we are selling him MAD men at work

Agree4 Disagree0

29 Aug 2015 09:27:01
Abdennour off to Chelsea,disgrace no one can see we NEED a quality defender, we will plod on until January and run for cover and try and sign a defender then,Disgraceful

Agree3 Disagree0

30 Aug 2015 07:19:15
Signed for Velencia another one bites the dust

Agree2 Disagree0

26 Aug 2015 12:43:00
looks like we might have signed a player in Thauvin lads. I know it was northampton but that was some show he put on.

Great to see we finally have soneone who can get dangerous balls into the box, great set piece delivery and gets into the box. sissoko, wijnaldum. thavin and mitrovic looks a very exciting combination.

Believable3 Unbelievable0

26 Aug 2015 17:00:29
Good player he can do what Obertan can't and he is a footballer and Obertan is not
Next game will show A. McKarens intentions I reckon we should attack Arsenal & play 1 DM Colback
B. Just how much we need another Quality defender and Striker.

Van Dyck & Austin will be sold this week but it seems nit to Newcastle
It's a disgrace that a bit of speculation and money that the Oaf will get back anyway could be the difference between finishing at best mid table or challenging the too 8 teams

Agree2 Disagree0

24 Aug 2015 16:54:25
Newcastle have made a £5 million for Benik Afobe from Wolves. Could mean Cisse or maybe Riviere are going to be sold.

Believable4 Unbelievable0

24 Aug 2015 19:49:53
both would do

Agree5 Disagree0

24 Aug 2015 21:14:09
A quality defender & striker would be the iceing on the cake

Looks we will run without these 2 and gamble as we have always done & hope we get bye.
It is a disgrace with all the professional peope we now have at the club they will allow this to happen.

Asley rules & the rest nod their heads.

Agree8 Disagree1

24 Aug 2015 22:11:34
So near yet so far away which will show over the next 4/5 games.

Window is not shut yet I hear one player possible but not a defender but you never know.

Agree6 Disagree0

24 Aug 2015 22:43:24
collo and Taylors performance on sat must have Charnley thinking they can park a new CB.

Agree7 Disagree0

27 Aug 2015 09:41:56
Afobe fits right into Fatties blueprint, young, sell on value, at least he won't get Pardewed

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Aug 2015 15:40:20
Abdennour Monaco now want 20m

Believable9 Unbelievable0

21 Aug 2015 17:09:13
No idea who he is. But if worth 20 pay 20 simple. We have to buy now because January does not become a sale it becomes an excuse not to invest because prices escalate as teams don't generally want to sell good players mid season unless decent profit to be made hence cabaye

Agree1 Disagree0

21 Aug 2015 18:44:36
Your inside sources said a fee was agreed Vida?

Agree2 Disagree0

21 Aug 2015 23:26:21
No only that Newcastle are considering breaking the Owen fee
Problem is no one tells no one anything and this board thing has slowed everything down because all decisions come from Ashley
20m is a lot so it may not happen One week to see
All eyes on the defenders tomorrow

Agree11 Disagree1

22 Aug 2015 00:48:34
thanks Vida, van dijk a better option?

Agree5 Disagree1

20 Aug 2015 09:02:44
Brighton just signed a young CB from Shrewsbury, perhaps this could be leading to Dunks departure. Obviously just speculation.

Believable2 Unbelievable1

20 Aug 2015 14:44:19
Can anyone tell me if Dunk is actually any good? I'd never heard of him before this window. I would rather we went for Abdenour if we really do have any interest in him, CL level experience etc but with the supposed level of interest from around Europe there's a good chance we won't get him although the same could have been said about Wijnaldum and Mitrovic.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Aug 2015 15:09:54
Well I am from Brighton and have seen them play a few times, he is okay he's still young and can improve but he is already better than some of our CB's. would be a little bit of a risk but think he could adapt well to the top flight.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Aug 2015 15:03:32
AC Milan interested in Sissoko but not wild about our £15 million price tag.

Believable1 Unbelievable1

17 Aug 2015 13:21:54
Reports in France saying that we'll sign Thauvin for £12 million with Cabella going the other way on loan. We'll then move on to trying to sign Abdenour from Monaco for £15 million. Would be great if it happens but not sure it will.

Believable4 Unbelievable3

17 Aug 2015 21:04:47
I'd rater give Aaron's the chance on the left side. If Thauvin signs I think the chance that Aaron's will sign a new contract will be reduces, it's a shame.
With the left-side of our defence also week and Thauvin doesn't seem like the type of player who will track back I really worry. Hope to be proven wrong.

Agree3 Disagree0

18 Aug 2015 02:48:24
Thauvin can play on either the left or the right so should he arrive it doesn't necessarily mean he will be playing in Aarons' place.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Aug 2015 08:56:03
Swapping like for like doesn't make sense.look what's happened last 3 seasons with buying french there ok when it's going well but once it gets tougher they hide become lazy.squad should of been built from the back first

Agree2 Disagree0

18 Aug 2015 10:14:54
Newcastle have missed the boat on good signings and should employ Southampton and Swansea scouts and negotiators.

2nd rate club run by 2nd rate no hoppers no football acumen people starting with Ashley.

Agree7 Disagree1

18 Aug 2015 13:15:13
Buy Thauvin and sell Aarons is not a shame it would be a disgrace. If it takes very penny we have left to buy a quality CB, quality LB and a quality CDM then that is what should happen. e have enough flair and firepower in the squad but he defence is naff.

Agree1 Disagree0

18 Aug 2015 17:40:04
it was summed up rather nicely that 2 players we passed on as free transfers scored against us last week. I thought free transfers would have had the big man drooling.

Agree5 Disagree0

18 Aug 2015 17:48:51
Deffo need a defensive midfielder,full back, centre half minimum, throw in another forward and we might have something, along with a couple of young kids.not asking for much like am I?. I think song as DM would be a snip at 5 million. but hey huw. probs sign only 1 more. hope I'm wrong

Agree2 Disagree0

18 Aug 2015 19:57:51
I changed my mind, this guy is a bargain. When Bristol City are paying £9m for a championship striker the world has gone crazy.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Aug 2015 10:01:31
We are signing Thauvin for the other side to Aarons, Mclaren isn't daft and knows potential when he see's it and he will know if Aarons is on one side and thauvin on the other it will be better service for Mitrovic. A Defender to sign before end of the window will show ambition for me as well.

Agree2 Disagree0

19 Aug 2015 20:39:15
OK deal done. Sissoko plays on the right - there's always a chance he might leave.
Assuming we have money for one more player - which position would you all want filling?

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Aug 2015 21:59:15
Still reports of teams being interested in Sissoko so sell him and throw all the money we get for him at the nearest CB

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Aug 2015 09:10:35
CB now and its been a good summer I think

Agree1 Disagree0

20 Aug 2015 11:50:41
One on the way I hear

Agree4 Disagree0

16 Aug 2015 13:34:18
Thauvin transfer absolute rubbish he started today for mars v reims if we were about to sign him he would not be risked could do with about 4 or 5 signings after yesterday performance

Believable3 Unbelievable4

18 Aug 2015 08:37:46
Gazbell you really know your stuff mind.

Agree2 Disagree2

18 Aug 2015 22:17:55
Well I think I got this one wrong were supposed to be swapping him for cabella doesn't make sense it's like for like we need new centre back throwing good money at players who ain't up to premier league standards he will be sitting on bench anyway Mclaren likes the players from last campaign

Agree1 Disagree0

19 Aug 2015 09:38:15
i think thauvin can manage one more stepover before giving the ball away. Is he any good at free kicks or corners. if he isn't then Charnley will be losing his job in January.

Agree1 Disagree0

13 Aug 2015 08:36:58
Williamson, Gouffran and Bigirimana all told they can leave,

Interest building up in Raphael Guerreiro (left back) but face competition from Monaco and Psg.

Strong interest in Brighton centre half, Lewis Dunk, where Williamson could be included as part of a swap deal.

Believable3 Unbelievable1

13 Aug 2015 10:53:37
If we were serious about a winger surely we would have gone for shuquiri.

I'd be really surprised if any more signings happen.

what happened to the war chest of 40m, I reckon Mike Ashley must work in aussie dollars too Vida!

Agree0 Disagree4

13 Aug 2015 11:57:32
Ashley would be in there right now and dealing in $ if the Austerity rumors had not started.

Agree16 Disagree1

13 Aug 2015 11:58:17
And in you opinion JT what merit?

Agree16 Disagree5

13 Aug 2015 21:07:58
Well thauvin seems to be our preferred choice for winger but really doesn't seem to have the same credentials as shaqiri.

Agree7 Disagree0

14 Aug 2015 11:48:07
Can't see what he brings more than cabella

Agree1 Disagree3

14 Aug 2015 23:46:08
You're right Desree. Both Thauvin and Shaqiri bring nothing that we don't have in Cabella. Both of them are used too used to being able to being stand out players, beating players and scoring goals with a greater frequency and ease in their respective leagues than they'd be able to in the PL. They'd be decent to pretty good but not as good as they've looked in other leagues. I'd rather stick with Cabella who at least has some PL experience than either Thauvin or Shaqiri.

Agree1 Disagree0

16 Aug 2015 09:46:46
I think Des's comparison was Thauvin vs Cabella and I have to agree. In Thauvin I think we would be taking a chance on a player who could go either way in his career. Obviously we all hope that every player NUFC signs will be a success but we know that's far from the truth as far as signings under the Ashley regime are concerned.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Aug 2015 09:57:59
Newcastle are moving for Bryam and have been watching Byram for almost three years now according to our records, and an advantage for Newcastle is that his contract at Leeds runs out next summer.

He can cover also at RB

Is it just more Hype, perhaps after Saturday
we may see some action

32m spent on 3 good players of which 15m came from Pardew MYB and Santon is a joke man,

Believable20 Unbelievable0

12 Aug 2015 12:34:29
5m for myb, 2.5m for santon, 3m for pardew. wake up man Vida!

Agree1 Disagree16

12 Aug 2015 12:55:58
I live in the Leeds Area and have been to watch Leeds with my friends a couple of times, Every single time I have been I have always said we (NUFC) should sign this kid he would be a good buy IMO.

Agree16 Disagree0

12 Aug 2015 13:32:12
Carr and Cathro were watching Byram at the weekend got some good potential would be very good backup for janmaat

Agree4 Disagree9

12 Aug 2015 17:12:38
Desree Newcastle if you can read between the lines Newcastle got almost 15m for these 3 deals, look at the Santon deal again.

Wake up man you will be advocating Ashley as the puppet master next.

Agree16 Disagree1

12 Aug 2015 22:26:26
the santon deal was worth 3.7m euros approx 2.7m pounds. What info do you have on the transfer Vida.

13 Aug 2015 04:43:59
The deal Des as will be seen in the accounts was nearer 5mGBP

Reports from Italy that Newcastle have made a late £13.5 million bid for Shaqiri. Even if it's true it's probably too late since all Shaqiri has left to do is the medical.

Believable1 Unbelievable5

09 Aug 2015 12:51:43
So our starting line up





Williamson not on bench . y not get rid of Squidward for aarons and Anita for abeid. Also would like to see vuckic on bench.

Believable2 Unbelievable3

09 Aug 2015 13:44:18
Supppse he lnows what he is doing but frankly Obertan Anita & Cisse should not be in the team nie or anytime
Hope I am wrong.

Agree14 Disagree1

09 Aug 2015 14:08:41
Ffs get a CB unless this team will never keep a clean sheet
Cisse off Overtan off andAnita just plays accross the oark hopeless

09 Aug 2015 14:14:42
Great player Cisse good job he has a chest

Agree11 Disagree0

09 Aug 2015 14:39:11

GET A CB as soon as possible or have the worst defence in the PL

Agree9 Disagree1

09 Aug 2015 15:30:41
Work in progress some positives
When we learn to win and distobute the ball like Southampton we will improve
2 headers conceded tells you everything
Were you watching Schteevie

Agree11 Disagree1

09 Aug 2015 16:22:01
sure . good result , colo looked rusty need new cb, anita is lost cause as is tiote. Need winger and mitrovic needs support else he going to get sent off. Team should be:




Perez / De Jong

De Jong if not starting


Ideally if we get another striker along line then cisse can be sold for decent monies.

Agree1 Disagree1

09 Aug 2015 22:06:35
If we got rid of mbiya because he couldn't head a ball how come we offered collo a new contract?

wijnaldum looks a class above the rest of the team. If mclaren is playing two holding midfielders we need someone better than anita. Cabaye would have been a perfect fit alongside collback. We definitely need more creativity from the middle.

won't state the obvious about the defence. Shawcross please!

Agree5 Disagree2

10 Aug 2015 01:15:17
and what was janmaat doing for the second goal. He jumps and pulls his head down at the sametime?

Agree6 Disagree1

09 Aug 2015 08:21:03
Adama traore possibly on way to liverpool with villa and Everton also chasing him. 19 years old looks well worth buying. Surely even ashley can see he's an asset that potentially should increase. speed .flair. and doesn't get knocked off ball easy.

Believable0 Unbelievable1

09 Aug 2015 09:20:53
it seems not up to Ashley these days, remember we have a football board to make these decisions. McClaren - to his credit seems focused upon bringing in players who could immediately improve the 1st team.

Agree0 Disagree1

09 Aug 2015 11:35:47
Not up to Ashley are you for Real everything is to do with Ashley every word every player. Don't like some get carries away just yet.

According to a report Newcastle have had a £11 million bid for Bordeaux's Uruguayan striker Diego Rolan turned down although it is thought that there is not a huge difference in the two clubs' valuation and Bordeaux are thought to be searching for Rolan's replacement already. QPR are also willing to accept £13 million for Charlie Austin rather than £15 million but only if they get the money straight away rather than installments.

Believable0 Unbelievable3

09 Aug 2015 09:21:29
would rather see a bit extra spent on Austin.

Agree1 Disagree2

07 Aug 2015 16:59:08
Team for Sunday
Krul, Janmaat, Haidara, Williamson, Taylor, Colback, Anita, Sissoko, Wijnaldum, Obertan, Cisse.
Heard it through the grapevine I hope it's false
5 players here that should not even be on the bench

Believable10 Unbelievable4

07 Aug 2015 19:04:22
Hope the lineup is:
Janmaat, Mbemba, Coloccini, Haidara,
Wijnaldum, Colback,
Sissoko, De Jong, Aarons,

07 Aug 2015 19:06:37
thats the team i'm dreading

JT we all want that line up let's see of McLaren jas any Chonies

Agree15 Disagree0

08 Aug 2015 09:05:18
First 10 games perhaps 4 points just hope a defender and winger are bought 3 weeks to go,this should have been done weeks ago.

Agree14 Disagree4

06 Aug 2015 13:31:18
One more signing expected, it will be a left sided cb. Abeid will make way for around 1.5 million and Williamson for around the same fee.
Toney has joined today, he will be played in development squad but could be loaned out.
Martins indi (crazy eyes) is valued at around 10 million by Porto or Terrance Kongolo is another name previously linked. He is a younger option and not quite as established. Schteeve does love a Dutchman. Don't expect any more moves for attacking targets, and also wait for de Jong and cabella are like new signings.

{Ed007's Note - There has been some murmurings about Newcastle's interest in Celtic's Dutch CB Virgil van Dijk. Everton are also said to be interested and Southampton are long term admirers of the player who Celtic hope to persuade to stay until January if they qualify for the CL group stages.}

Believable8 Unbelievable3

06 Aug 2015 13:51:03
If all we do is sign one more CB I'd call this a good window overall

06 Aug 2015 14:08:23
Thx Danno no need to worry then back to the cricket.

Agree14 Disagree0

06 Aug 2015 15:21:21
New CB signed, collo 1 year extension. Williamson to go, I hope so danno, if we replace with vvd

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Aug 2015 17:19:40
I'm never sure on players from the SPL, they tend to be very hit and miss (although the same could be said for most leagues). Forster and Wanyama are probably to only two recently that have impressed me from the SPL. Forster was naff at us but seemed to turn into something different at Celtic and has been solid for saints. Naismith is another player who has done well but others seem to struggle abit more. I mean Boyata looked a liability whenever I saw him play but apparently looks a good player at Celtic. Denayer who partnered Van Dijk is seemingly staying at Man City after signing a 5 year deal, I would be happy to sign VVD but i'm not convinced he will be solid.
Obviously the ideal would be to sign a good experienced CB maybe even english but there isn't many around. Shawcross but he won't leave for a reasonable fee. I would quite like us to go for Ben Gibson from Boro, but let's face it no chance.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Aug 2015 08:57:31
Wanyama seems to have adapted to Prem football well

Agree1 Disagree0

05 Aug 2015 17:32:06
Rumours going around that the toon are battling Everton for Shaqiri who is transfer listed by inter Milan for £12m

Believable0 Unbelievable3

05 Aug 2015 18:35:56
Could be a good buy but could also be another Ben Arfa.

Agree0 Disagree1

06 Aug 2015 06:12:16
Any bidding war we will loose The apathy regarding bringing in another defender winger and striker shows nothing has been learned
A few early defeats should change all that, and McLarens giving everyone a chance might read good
but is foitball suicude with Taylor Williamson Obertan Guffron and Anita is not far behind,

Looking forward to first game but it is like Ashley has taken the shine off it and McLaren subscribing to
not insisting on 3 more much needed players is disappointing.

Agree9 Disagree1

06 Aug 2015 08:45:48
What makes you compare him to ben afry?

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Aug 2015 11:38:55
He's a good player but is inconsistent and tries to do everything himself. You know, he's the type of player who looks to try and beat one more man rather than pass or shoot.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Aug 2015 15:23:01
matbe that's because he can? Would we as fans see that as a negative?

Jesse Lingaard has been made available for transfer by Manchester United priced at only £2.5m. Steve McClaren is a big fan and wants Jesse at The Toon.

Believable1 Unbelievable2

05 Aug 2015 08:55:31
May not be a bad option, cheap and quite young so I think he would be a decent buy for us. Could be good having him and Aarons on our wings.

Agree1 Disagree0

05 Aug 2015 08:56:54
would be great business at that price, not sure I can see it happening though

Agree1 Disagree0

05 Aug 2015 13:11:25
This could just be a non starter. Lingaard doesn't look like getting much game time with Januzaj, Depay, Mata etc ahead of him and he was on loan at Derby under Steve so this could just be the rumour mill at work. That being said I think he'd be a decent signing. From what I saw at the u21 Euros he was England's best player

Agree1 Disagree1

06 Aug 2015 08:34:55
Another Day another Name wh do we really need andcwhat positions and even after 3 good signings do we have any professionalism in Charley and Carr to actually do this?

03 Aug 2015 21:43:52
We would be if the rumours in the paper are true.

Agree1 Disagree7

The rumour is tenuous at best. We need either a good CB or a very good striker who'll score enough to help offset the number of goals we'll probably leak. That said I think a bit more discipline and communication at the back is needed as much as a new CB.

Nufc Taylor and Williamsin have known each other a long time and someone must see they are pathetic

There's a good chance both maybe sold soon since their contracts run out at the end of the year. Taylor may be offered an extension to make up the numbers if nothing else but this is almost certainly Williamson's last season with us if he isn't sold.

Most good managers who know what they are doing build from the back, that is apart it seems from the manager at NUFC.
Yes we need strikers and to date have signef 3 quality players with apparently according to runours a winger & striker still to come.

But ignoring our shoddy defenders will be McLarens first costly mistake.

Seeing Williamson and Taylor torn apart in the Premier League might just make him wake up,Collocini at this level
is also fading & that leaves only Dummet as cover which is a poor mans defence.

I'll say it again Vida, what team have you been supporting mate. With the exception of the first 10 games of 2011/12 newcastles defence has always been guff.

Get soneone to read it to you Deseree save me repeating
what I wrote.

KK lost winning the league by not buying one quality defender and since then it has been poor and never a priority.
The appointment of McLaren will hopefully see these problems addressed and quite frankly I don't see how it can get any worse so surely the only way is up but to see hasmcKaten as yet not done anythong to date is frightening.

There I go again repeating myself and others.

Hope you understand Deseree

Just a few bits flying around saying no more signings? Or are they waiting to ship more players out likes of sissoko, cisse, tiote they all get descent wage so that frees up funds for incoming players because basically if any of these players get injured were back to having worse squad than last season just a thought but a worrying one

yep, bit worried that McClaren said there is nothing on the go currently, though you have to admire the honesty, something we never had before. They are still looking and I get the feeling that we are back to the stage where we will now only do a deal if it represents good value.

Newcastle in the running to sign Saido Berahino. I'm in favour of this personally.

Believable2 Unbelievable3

03 Aug 2015 11:33:18
would be a terrific signing if it comes off. If we had a bit more pace in the team I think we could score a lot more goals. That in itself would take the heat off our defence.

our defence was suspect even when we had albert, howey, bramble and woodgate.

Agree1 Disagree2

03 Aug 2015 12:08:27
Would love to sign Berahino. Considering we have at least 4 first team CBs I don't see us signing another unless one is sold. We'll definitely need one more striker, especially if Cisse is sold(which would be a mistake). I don't think we'll pay the full £20 million West Brom want though.

Agree1 Disagree0

03 Aug 2015 17:29:49
20 Million plus the rest. If I was West Brom I wouldn't sell him unless a silly offer came in, if Austin is valued at 15 after a season in the prem. Plus Austin is 5 years older as has had big injuries.
Last year Berahino at 21 scored 14 prem goals, whereas Charlie Austin at that age had just been signed up from a non league side to join Swindon. I would put my money on Berahino being twice the player austin is today in 5 years. Berahino if available for 20 million would be a bargain, in 2-3 years he could be starting up top for england and valued at double that 20 million.

Agree Danno but Ashley will go no where near that figure & we will see the old method of bagain hunting and infortunately players lile this will remain as they are for Newcastle fans just names.

Bringing young kid in fm Northampton yet sending Armstrong out on loan.I know therewill be reasons and that is why I am not a manager/coach.

Would like to see a bit more movement over the weekend for another CB then use the start of the season to assess our requirements.

I know most will come on shouting striker but with Perez, Mitrovic and Cisse we have a reasonable front line all be it young and untested. With deJong and Gini in the centre with Cabella who could now be played as a genuine number 10 and with Colback and Sissoko I think that is a pretty good set up.

optemistic for this season. Top eight

i'd like to see a winger and Defender

Agree3 Disagree0

31 Jul 2015 19:11:03
And that is for starters Des we also need adding and pruning the 25 man squad
Perhaps after tomorrow certainly Southampton and the next 2 matches McLaren will see how desperately they needed

I am lost that he percerviers with Obertan and Gouffran
and with Tubby Mike only seeing numbers I am afraid no defender will be bought until Williamson is either given away or sold.

The squad is full of average/under performing plyers. I can't help but think that if we changed our position on transfers it would actually create a more valued squad.

I wonder what kind of impact a seasoned international defender like ron Vlaar or John Terry might have on the rest of the defence including williamson.

The same could be said for midfield where a player like lampard would have a massive impact.

Mike Ashley would flog more shirts and give the club a more global appeal from a brand perspective.

Whilst the squad need trimmed I think like all teams you need a balance, if you look at the impact KK had on the players around him at newcastle you do wonder wether we should be taking the plunge on an older player

Agree4 Disagree1

01 Aug 2015 10:02:12
I expect h'll go on loan immediately as there were a number of championship clubs after him as well. if not immediately then in January.
